Lead us outside, lead us out quietly
The often overlooked spaces of industrial areas and failed development sites are examined in Talia Smith’s first solo exhibition Lead us outside, lead us out quietly. Through photography, video and a publication the exhibition examines what happens to such spaces when their intended function is abandoned. The sites now seem to have only a transitional present or future and have begun to be retaken by nature. These places are neither glamorous nor beautiful, but there is something within each overlooked and overgrown blade of grass that resonates.
By finding quiet beauty within these spaces; perhaps we will recognize and respond to the quiet, fleeting, often ignored moments in our own lives before time passes on again.
